Study reveals that 1 bowl of white rice is equivalent to 2 cans of softdrink

Harvard researchers discovered that consuming less white rice decreases chances of diabetes.

White rice is a food staple in most Asian countries including the Philippines. We, Filipinos, eat white rice everyday as part of our daily diet. Despite this, there are studies wherein white rice increases the risk of type 2 diabetes by 10%. There was even a recent research that one bowl of white rice has more than twice the carbohydrate content of a can of softdrink.

A study made by Harvard researchers revealed that the high glycemic index (GI) is what makes its high-profile when it comes to diabetes so consuming less white rice can decrease the risk of getting diabates.

White rice was also found to be low in fiber and magnesium.

"People with high white rice consumption lack these beneficial nutrients and Asian populations consume a lot of white rice," researcher Qi Sun stated.

But the researchers noted that white rice is not entirely the reason for high diabetes risk.

"It is white rice plus the aspects of modern living - including less physical work - that conspire to elevate the incidence of type 2 diabetes," Yale University's Dr. David clarified.

Professor Qi Sun of Harvard university recommends brown rice in place of white rice as it can provide fiber and magnesium, nutrients that are not present in white rice.
